Klober has received a big boost for its market-leading low resistance air-open underlay Permo® air, as it has received certification by Local Authority Building Control (LABC) for its Registered Details scheme.
LABC, which represents all building control teams in England and Wales, ensures that buildings are safe, healthy, inclusive and efficient, and meet the standards set by the Building Regulations.
Its Registered Details scheme is a one-off certification process that proves compliance with Building Regulations and Standards across England, Wales and Scotland.
In the past, variable performance of vapour permeable underlays led to the NHBC and BSI deciding only air-open membranes could be used without supporting high level ventilation.
Designed to meet this requirement and prevent condensation forming in the roofspace, Klober Permo® air offers an exceptional level of breathability, seeing it specified for roofing upgrades in many high profile and historic buildings.
For new builds, particularly those with complex roof designs, underlay performance is put under greatest strain during the critical drying out period.
Permo® air’s use on both cold and warm roof installations avoids the additional cost of supporting ventilation and offers the additional benefit of having been tested for wind uplift resistance by the BRE.
BBA and IAB approved, Permo® air not only avoids the additional cost of supporting ventilation, but also interruptions in the roofline caused by traditional tile or slate vents. Being manufactured from polypropylene, it is also fully recyclable.
Reflecting on the certification Graham Copson, Product Systems Manager – Components, commented: “Certification from LABC for its Registered Details scheme is great news for Klober. Registering Permo® air with LABC increases industry confidence in this already popular product and it helps ensure acceptance by all local authorities across the country.”
